Memorial Event: Dean Joseph Bordogna
February 25, 2020 at 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Please join us on Tuesday, February 25, as we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Joseph Bordogna, Professor Emeritus of Electrical and Systems Engineering and former Dean of Penn Engineering.
Dr. Bordogna was a student and a colleague in our school, and a beloved and visionary dean. He provided the foundational leadership for the world-renowned M&T program, was a champion of K-12 education, and a founder of PRIME (Philadelphia Regional Introduction for Minorities to Engineering). He was an officer on the USS New Jersey, which is anchored here in Philadelphia. He served as the deputy director and Chief Operating Officer of the National Science Foundation from 1999-2005. Most importantly, he was a true friend, colleague and mentor to so many.
A memorial celebration will be held in the Glandt Forum at the Singh Center for Nanotechnology, followed by a reception in the Lubin Galleria. We hope you can attend.
